The Scout 280 Sportfish is a pure center console, no-nonsense fishing boat with Scout's usual array of clever design touches to maximize efficiency. Excellent fit and finish, with a fiberglass stringer system that extends into the integrated transom area that Scout calls the "Strata-Mount". This system is designed to spread the stress generated by the engines throughout the entire hull.
There is full standing headroom beneath the console for privacy in the head. The head system includes a holding tank and macerator.
The Scout 280 Sportfish features massive amounts of storage for fishing rods and personal gear, two fish boxes and a 30 gal live bait well.
The owner has had her at 55mph but that is not the maximum speed.

The Scout 280 Sportfish center console was built to meet the demands of the die-hard angler. Scout's exclusive Air Assist Hull and aggressive 21-degree deep-V hull pledges maximum speed and fuel efficiency while keeping hunters safe and dry in rough seas. The inventive Scout-Strata-Mount outboard engine mounting system allows the natural stresses of engine weight and thrust to be equally distributed throughout the entire hull for unmatched performance and structural strength. Fishing features include an enormous deck, abundant storage, insulated fishboxes, a 30-gallon lighted livewell, and a yacht-quality bait prep station.
